“Gary Fisher’s Wahoo International is the perfect example of a small business that has been able to create revolutionary products and create worldwide use and demand. Wahoo’s product Solarez is the leader in resin repairs and can literally be found all over the world. It’s the name that comes to mind every time you think of surfboard repair just as Kleenex is to tissues. Another one of Wahoo’s revolutionary products, Lifesled has set the standard for waterborne rescue extraction and is used by fire, county, state, national and military rescue agencies worldwide.
This small San Diego business has been able to create a global network of over 30 distributers to export to represented by nearly every continent on the globe. Adding to Wahoo’s global rach is the expansive list of 300 plus vendors located everywhere from Japan, New Zealand, Indonesia, Cyprus, Chile, Dubai and Germany just to name a few.”
